YOUTH AMBASSADORS

Goodwill’s Youth Ambassador program is a volunteer opportunity aimed at engaging bright and energetic youth that have an appreciation for learning and care for their community. Through this new program, motivated young adults will be able to develop a connection with one or more of Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA’s locations and their staff. As an ambassador, these individuals will focus on increasing leadership skills and preparing other youth to make a difference in their communities through volunteerism.

In addition, participants will gain:

  • Experience for college application and/or senior projects
  • Gratification of giving back to local community
  • Networking opportunities
  • Certificate
  • 10% discount in our stores with student ID
